Agriculture comes to life for youth at NCW Fair

NCW Fair

WATERVILLE- It’s livestock judging day at the NCW Fair as dozens of market steers, Hogs and Lambs are being prepared for Saturday’s 4-H and FFA auction.

Chelan 4-H member, Wyatt Dietrich is hoping for a winning bid that will help him at least break even.

We also talked to Haley Vargas who’s steer, Sparkey, was judged best in his group . . .

Haley says her steer, named Bombo, loves Oreos which may have enhanced his winning the Blue Ribbon. The Livestock auction is set to begin Saturday at 10 am. The livestock barns were a buzz of activity during the first day of the fair with Horses, chickens, rabbits, ducks, and pigs just to name a few.

The four-day ag expo is Douglas County’s opportunity to show off its agricultural heritage. Douglas County Commissioner, Dan Sutton, talked to NCWLIFE News Director Steve Hair about the fair. . .

The NCW Fair began in 1889 as the Douglas County Industrial Exposition. It was also known as the Waterville Potato Carnival.

This year’s event includes the Big Bend Roundup Rodeo, Indian Relay Race and culminates with Country music star Neal McCoy in concert.
